The Battle for Middle-earth: Tactics BETA 2 – global updating which adds a gameplay from the first part of a series.
Gundabad is an ancient Dwarven stronghold that is taken by the Mountain Orcs for their main base of operations and preparations for war against them. The Gundabad Orcs are known for their brutality and great strenght for they are the most pure breed of Orcs in Middle-Earth. Their King and war leader, Azog the Defiler, is the most vicious and thoughest of all their race. He and his son, Bolg of the North, rule over the Mountains with an iron fist.Gundabad is a sub-faction of the Misty Mountains, along with the Goblin-Town. But in contrast to weaker Goblin units, Gundabad brings strong Orc Hunter units, heavy Battle Orcs and ferocious Gundabad Wargs.
Gundabad is more melee oriented and relies on thoughness and raw strenght of its infantry units.
Basic Units of Gundabad are the Hunter Orcs, which are divided in three classes: Gundabad Warriors, Archers and Spearmen.
Heavy Units for Gundabad are Battle Orcs, divided in Gundabad Swordsmen and Gundabad Pikemen. They are fully upgradable and one of the thoufhest units in the game.Unlike the rest of the Heavy Units, they are limited to 8 battalions, instead of 5.
Gundabad Warg Riders serve as Cavalry for Gundabad, very quick and vicious against Infantry in close combat, but they lack in good trample damage. Along with riders, Warg Scouts serve as the basic infantry unit for quick map exploring and taking down enemy Pikemen.
Besides Mountain Giants, who are siege unit, the role of supporting siege units are Gundabad Battle Trolls. They are not as strong as their Mordor breed, but they serve their purpose. They can be upgraded with armor in order to prolong their usage on the battlefield.
